Getting Off: Pornography and the End of Masculinity

Getting Off: Pornography and the End of Masculinity
by Robert Jensen [South End Press]

In his latest work, Robert Jensen launches an unflinching and personal attack on the consumption of pornography and the porn-ization of mass entertainment media. Getting Off surveys how porn serves as a pervasive but rarely-examined cultural support for patriarchy, homophobia and racism. Jensen also attacks conventional definitions of masculinity based on conflict and emotional noncommunication, and implicates porn in its continued hold on modern men of all political stripes. -jl

The media's job is to interest the public in the public interest. -John Dewey
